we have signed my 4yr old up for soccer and the days leading up to it we talk about it and he gets excited. the moment we show up to practice he gets shy and won't play. not only will he not play but he hides behind our legs and cries if we try and convince him he will have fun. this same thing happens at bday parties. he won't join in any activities where they are required to do things individually, like doing an obstacle course. i have been very patient and not forced him to play but am not sure this is the right appraoch. i am afraid he will think he never has to do individual activities or have a spotlight on him and i think this will do more harm than good as he gets older.
does any have any advice on what the best approach is. my goal is to not scare him into doing anything but help him become comfortable with
